Baselworld 2018: Such A Specification Is Worth It Tag Heuer Carrera Heuer 02

TAG HEUER launched the new self-made movement with GMT function on the 55th anniversary of the Carrera series. This new work will be an indispensable wrist companion for the younger generation who loves travel and adventure.

In order to commemorate the 55th anniversary of the Carrera series, Tag Heuer superimposed two time functions on the Heuer 02 movement to create the latest work.

From the prototype in 1963 to the new product line Heuer 02 equipped with the modern intelligent module Connected Modular, the TAG HEUER Carrera series has always been synonymous with avant-garde, and officially entered the 55th anniversary in 2018. For TAG HEUER, this is a great time to launch a new chronograph with GMT time function. The new work continues Carrera’s DNA and brand elements, and also returns to the original design of the 3-6-9 chronograph configuration in 1963. The minute and hour counters are set at 3 and 9 o’clock respectively, the small second dial is at 6 o’clock, and the date window is at 4:30. A GMT function is also added. This is the first time TAG Heuer has added this complex mechanism to its own movement.

The two-tone bezel is made of ceramic. At the same time, a striking red hand is used as the time hand of the two places on the dial. With the perspective design of the dial, the overall look is uniquely modern.

The super practical second time zone can be easily adjusted via the crown, and the time is indicated by the red lacquered hands and the GMT 24-hour graduated bezel made of black and blue ceramics. The GMT hand is cleverly placed between the hour and minute hands, and the corresponding GMT scale makes the reading more clear. The Heuer 02 home-made movement, which can be seen from the hollow face plate, is covered in a wide 45 mm stainless steel case and has a water resistance of 100 meters.
